No Roche Social Media Summit For Me

2010 June 29

This morning I woke up at 7:00 am very excited to meet all of my fellow DOC friends.  I have been wanting to meet all of you in person for a long time and this was finally the time to do it and also get a chance to have our voices heard.  That excitement turned into sadness and disappointment very quickly however.

When I went to go pick up my rental car from Budget this morning, which was already paid for by the way, they told me that they would need to put a $500 hold on my card.  Well, 6 months ago I cancelled all of my credit cards because I am trying to pay them off, and I just came back from a weekend vacation for Amanda’s birthday, so $500 just sitting in my bank account for nothing is not something that I have.  I also don’t have a reliable enough car to drive to Orlando and back.

So, I am now sitting at home watching Law and Order: SVU.

I am very, very disappointed and will never use Budget rental car services ever again in my life.

This sucks

    Are you under 25? I rented my car from Budget (tried Enterprise first but they would not do a one-way rental) and it only cost me about $67 (with no $500 hold) because I rented it for 1 day + 20 hours and they charge by 24 periods, which means I basically got the 2nd day free.

    Enterprise only put a $150 hold on our debit card for our car in Orlando this past April. We are in the same boat you are with no credit cards because after FINALLY paying them off, we frankly just don’t believe in them!

    So sorry you didn’t make it. What a bummer…especially not to know there was an issue until too late to try to resolve it.
